Zaragoza vs Alcorcon Preview
The Segunda Division promotion race was really bubbling up nicely at the time the season was brought to a premature halt. Zaragoza were on a charge towards a long-awaited return to the top flight but they must pick themselves up, refocus and go again here. They kick things off with a home game against an Alcorcon side that won’t totally have given up on getting themselves into the promotion picture.
So much will depend on how they start. In 10th place with 41 points on the board, a play-off push is certainly not out of the question. However if it takes them a couple of weeks to really get going again, they could quickly slip back into relegation danger with the games coming thick and fast. There are no such worries for Zaragoza who are 2nd with 55 points, crucially a 5 point advantage on 3rd placed Almeria.
With Victor Fernandez at the helm, Zaragoza have been relentless since the turn of the year and remain unbeaten in the Segunda Division in 2020. 6 wins and 4 draws from their 10 league matches this calendar year has seen them soar up the league after a mixed start to the season which saw them slip as low as 10th in the winter.
This though is in some respects, about as tough a game as they could wish to come back to. That might sound strange with Alcorcon down in mid-table but the South Madrid side are remarkably yet to suffer an away defeat all season. It’s 5 wins and 10 draws on the road for Fran Fernández’s side and over 60% of their points have come on their travels.

Zaragoza vs Alcorcon Predictions
Score Prediction: 1-1 Draw
Zaragoza’s momentum will inevitably have been halted a bit by the interruption to the season and this is an awkward game for them to come back to. Alcorcon will just carry so much belief from their extraordinary away record and they will not fear going to an empty Romareda. This one could be destined for a draw.
